Those of us familiar with the Lord of the Rings will remember a scene near the beginning. Frodo is in his hobbit hole in the Shire, that good, green, wholesome, peaceful place, when Gandalf comes to visit him. Gandalf summons Frodo to leave this happy, green and peaceful place and venture on a perilous journey into enemy territory (to destroy the Ring of Power). Evil is on the march, the Enemy is moving, war is brewing and even the Shire will no longer be safe. Frodo must leave his comfort and join the action. He must go to war. He has a part to play.
